But it REALLY bugs me that she didn't match her stripes on the front.
The same thing bugged me, but then I saw a completed Askew where the knitter had taken the time to match her stripes and I LOVED it ... and promptly cast on one of my own. I'm just finishing up the second half of the front now, with matched stripes
and I'm praying it'll fit me and look good because I LOVE it. Matching the stripes on the front didn't take much effort at all and only one splice. Now I only need to decide whether I'm going to try to do any kind of even rough matching on the back
